The classes are designed to help area residents interested in obtaining their general educational development (GED) diplomas or in improving their basic skills, according to a news release from Neosho.
Classes will take place in the Teaching and Learning Center on the Ottawa campus. Class orientation will run for about three hours each day, Oct. 30 through Nov. 1. Once participants have completed the orientation, classes will take place Monday through Thursday, beginning Nov. 5, and will last until the student has completed their goals, the news release said. Sessions will be offered from 9 a.m. to noon, 1 to 4 p.m. and 4 to 7 p.m.
Instructors for the six-week course will be Sandi Lingerfelt and Joshua Furnish.
Those 16 or 17 years of age must have been “un-enrolled from high school” and provide documentation of such, the release said.
A valid ID or driver’s license also must be provided. Participants will not be allowed to take the official practice tests for the GED, which is required, unless some form of identification is provided and all required paperwork is complete, the release said.
The cost for the class is $25, which covers the official practice test fee, COMPASS college entrance exam and WorkKeys employment skills test, in addition to transition services, the release said.
The $25 fee is due before the first week of class. The GED test fee is $90, due upon registration for the test, the release said.
Another class is scheduled to begin Jan. 15, 2013.
